The following Research Centers are led by faculty in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
A $23M program funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) through the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Superfund Research Program that is reducing exposure to environmental contamination and reducing the preterm birth rate in Puerto Rico and beyond.
An $18M graduated center funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and industry partners develops new sensor technologies and health monitoring strategies to provide a continuous stream of accurate, up-to-date information about the state of roadways and bridge decks gathered by sensors mounted on vehicles.
The Center for Research on Early Childhood Exposure and Development (CRECE, Spanish for “grow”) in Puerto Rico studies how mixtures of environmental exposures and other factors affect the health and development of infants and children living in the heavily-contaminated island of Puerto Rico – an underserved, highly-exposed, and low-income population with significant health disparities.
